Sky-Lines | Back


Client: Cumbria Arts in Education

Artists/Writers: Graciella Ainsworth, John Neilson, Bill Herbert, Graham Mort

Date: 1996 – 2000

Sky-Lines was an ARTS UK concept that created extensive collaborations between writers, artists and 12 Cumbrian schools to research and create new writings about Cumbrian landscapes. The writings were then used as starting points for sculptural artworks which incorporated various texts. The completed body of work has been placed within the Lake District National Park Visitor Centre, next to Lake Windermere, making it the most extensive public art project to be sited within the National Park Planning Area and creating a new precedent for public art in sensitive landscapes in Cumbria.
